My Trip to Paong, Ulu Baram (Part 4)


Work today was quite relaxing a bit. Not as tension as the day before.

The friendly housekeeper gave me these candies. They were from Indonesia. The housekeeper is a really nice lady who always makes me coffee whenever I go to the office for work.

On the other side of the candies there are some random/motivational words. Cool.

Another cool looking bug found.

I don't know what is this but it looks neat.

One of the technologies in the camp.

Night's coming.

Dogs mating out caught in the act. I was so kepo.

At night when we were about to sleep, we heard some noises coming from where we put our stuff including luggages on the floor. My colleague rose from the bed and went to check out one of his bags. It turned out that he left one of his bag unzipped. Most of the tidbits in the bag were destroyed by rats and cockroaches.

Most have to be thrown. There were still a lil' bit of leftovers which the packaging still looked okay but just imagine that those rats and cockroaches had been crawling around the stuff in his bag. Yuck~ no way it's edible. But he said, 'Maybe we can still give these to someone'. Yeah he did gave it away but I had no idea who got it lol.

He was devastated. Disappointed. Shocked. Pissed off. And sad.

I had one of the weirdest dreams in a long time during my sleep. All I could remember was that I dreamed about a headless short-tailed croc and a cat. It's about them taking care and protecting each other from harm. A story about one horribly disabled vicious animal and another cute and gentle kind of animal. Damn it was touching sniff sniff.


Well not much happening today except for a lot of sight seeings during the day. At night, well while I laying on the bed getting ready to sleep with the no electricity after 10pm, I felt something moving around my head at the neck area. It's so familiar that I knew it was that same damn cockroach which has been harassing us for 3 nights! Surprised, I rose up, took my flashlight and aim at it. There it was glaring at me. My colleague handed me a slipper and I tried to whack it but failed. That bugger was fast dammit. After awhile I stopped looking for it and went back to sleep. I hoped that it won't come back anymore bugging but when I was about to go la-la land, I felt it again! This time around my calves! The same thing happened again. I flashed at it and then it's gone. Very fast that bugger. I shall kill it next time. For now, I applied some more insect repellent around by hands and legs.

I miss basketball.
